    Intellectual, economical, and political centre of Graeco-Roman Egypt for almost one thousand years and, second to Rome, one of the most significant cities in the ancient world. A metropolis linked with many myths and legends, a model for urban planning and development. Ancient Alexandria is associated with the Pharos, the Great Library as part of the Mouseion, Alexander the Great as the city founder, and a host of influential thinkers and rulers. With the rise of Christianity, all major cultures and religions of the Early Roman Imperial Era were present at Alexandria. The conference addresses a wide variety of themes, all converging in the question of the features and manifestations of cultural-religious encounters in this hub of Graeco-Roman civilization.
